These are the same rankings that had Kittle No. 1 earlier in the week

Earlier in the week, ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler spoke to over 50 league executives, coaches, scouts, and players and they named San Francisco 49ers star George Kittle the best tight end in the NFL. There wasn’t any Niner for the running backs or wide receivers.

Quarterbacks were up next, and while Jimmy Garoppolo didn’t land inside the top 10, he did receive two...

The 49ers have a few options at running back, no matter what happens with Raheem Mostert

Earlier in the week, San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert requested a trade that caught a lot of us off guard. Mostert had recently signed a contract but wants to be compensated and paid like the best running back on the team and rightfully so. No matter what happens with Raheem, the 49ers have a few roles they need to figure out at...

Breaking down the 90 players on the 49ers offseason roster in 90 posts (over 90 or so days). Today is safety Jaquiski Tartt

San Francisco 49ers safety Jaquiski Tartt started double-digit games for the first time in his career. There is no coincidence that Tartt also had the best season of his career from an impact standpoint. Sure, Tartt has had seasons where he’s had more tackles, but only the 2017 version of Tartt was in the same ballpark as last...

Aiyuk tied for the sixth-highest rookie wide receiver rating on Madden

Another year of football means another year of EA Sports Madden. The popular video game released the top rookie receiver ratings on Friday morning, and San Francisco 49ers first-round pick Brandon Aiyuk came in tied for sixth-best for all rookies. Here is a look at the ratings:

91 speed isn’t bad for Jerry Jeudy but I think he should be 92 or 93 speed. His play speed is legit. Also thought Higgins played faster than 87 speed. He ran away from enough...

Much has been made about San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and his in-game management skills. From aggressiveness on fourth down, at the end of halves, to letting his quarterback air it out. Rotoworld’s Haden Winks used 10 metrics to evaluate how efficient and aggressive teams are:

Hopefully he’s healthy and ready to go for the start of the season!

It hasn’t been a great offseason for the San Francisco 49ers’ wide receivers. Deebo Samuel suffered a Jones fracture during offseason training with teammates in Nashville, while kick returner Richie James fractured his rest.

The good news is that slot receiver Trent Taylor looks as healthy as he has been in two years.

His agent is confident the two parties will come to an agreement.

With less than a month to go before the San Francisco 49ers are supposed to report for training camp, it still isn’t known if one of their leaders will be in attendance.

Tight end George Kittle still doesn’t have a new contract extension, which may lead to him holding out. Kittle held a conference call as part of a promotional campaign for Gatorade, and touched on if there is a...

Mostert’s value has never been higher than it is now, but that doesn’t mean he’s in control.

San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert requested a trade on Wednesday. Ian Rapoport said Mostert wants to be the highest-paid running back on the team. Tevin Coleman will make 4.55 million in 2020, and that’s where Mostert wants to be. After the season both players just had, that’s a fair request. Mostert has worked his...
